No maps, sorry, but Andrei Martyanov instead :-)

Friends, I found no good map, and I don’t feel like waiting any further.  So no map today, sorry! Also, I need the rest, badly. But, instead, Andrei Martyanov just released a very VERY good video.  He really covers it all. So, today, I leave you in his care, he explains it all very well.  I have nothing to add. Cheers Andrei PS: also check this one: https://www.moonofalabama.org/2022/03/challenge-response-how-russia-is-countering-western-moves-against-it.html

I just listened to Sleepy Joe

Biden said nothing even remotely new or even vaguely interesting. The only “novelty” was that Biden said that he was now sure that Putin has taken the decision to invade the Ukraine. Did you ever hear the expression “it’s not

Why It Is Not Advised

By Andrei Martyanov, exclusively for the Saker Blog For the US Navy ships to enter the Black Sea and hope to survive in case of the, God forbids, any kind of a conflict with Russia—yes, you read it right—is a fantasy, or, to be even more precise—an unscientific fiction. This group, let alone a single US destroyer of the Arleigh Burke-class (these are the most active types in the US

Interview by Yvonne Lorenzo for The Saker Blog I started to write these words on “Veteran’s Day” 2019, and find myself in agreement with a post on the American Conservative by Major Danny Sjurson entitled “Why We Must Reclaim ‘Armistice Day’” in which he wrote in this excerpt: Europeans dubbed it the Great War.
